No, Major Wobbles isn't a kids book (but hey, sounds like it could be), it's what we're having.
Still waiting for visa decision but it shouldn't be far away now & whilst we were really up for it a few weeks ago, big doubts have now set in. We've had an offer on the house which isn't too bad considering the state of the market, but still 18K less than we paid for it, though I don't see the market improving much over the next 12 months so if we want to go to Oz we might as well take it & hope to arrive in SA by end 2009. (Renting house out is not an option)
It's the big fear that it we won't find jobs, will eat away at all our capital & have to return with nothing. We are risking everything as I'm sure many of you have already done but how do you cope with it????
Yes we are hopeful of a more enjoyable life, better weather etc & are not bothered about maintaining the same standard of living we currently enjoy, but absolutely scared to death about it not working out. Being on a 475 is like having 1 hand tied behind your back, but it's the only way we can get there.
Reading this morning about TC & Clare returning to UK just adds to my worries, but I know they are doing what's best for them. If they hadn't have tried it, they would have spent the rest of their lives wondering, which is how we feel, but the financial cost is so big & thats without the worries of leaving family!
I know there are some good news stories on here eg. Martin getting a job, Moosh getting another job so quickly so not everything is bad.
Am I just focusing on the negatives? Did you all go through this?
